Jill Stein, who is seeking the US Green Party Presidential nomination, called upon Congress on Thursday to stand up to terrorists by rejecting the Obama administration’s proposed sale of $1.29 billion bombs to Saudi Arabia. Congress has 30 days to reject the deal.
“The wealthy elites of Saudi Arabia have been one of the leading funders of terrorism for decades. Now they are funding terrorists like Daesh (ISIL). And often the weapons the US provides to our so-called allies in the Middle East end up in the hands of those who attack us,” Stein said.
